Hello and welcome to another sketch challenge. This is such a fun challenge and I love reinterpretating my previous layouts. Here is this month’s sketch:
It was inspired by this layout which I created for the September release:
I decided to go with the same design idea and I created a background using the Halftone Circle dies. I used my large big shot which can cut papers that are 8.5*11. I layed the circle dies around the paper keeping in mind that I would need to place my photo onto it . I kept a spot free of circles.
Then I popped the cut background onto some white cardstock and added the circles placing them in line with the design on the paper.
For embellishments I used some labels I had stamped and cut out before hand and I also cut out some flowers from one of the patterned papers from the Our Family collection. I created three clusters and placed them to create a visual triangle. This will help the eye flow over the layout.
I added some wood veneer elements and buttons for texture. In my scrapbook nook I have little bowls with leftovers from previous projects. In one of them there was an embossed frames which I also used.
Create a scrapbook layout, a documenter spread, a notebook pocket spread or any other project based on the sketch above. You may use either the colors, the composition, the elements, the texture or any combination to create your project.

Welcome Altenew fans. Today I’ll be sharing a layout (with a video) and I card I made using the same supplies. I find it easier to create a card just after having finished a layout as I have all my supplies out and I can create a card with the same techniques.
For this layout I pulled out several Altenew supplies: The Striped Leaf Cover Die, the new Artist Markers, an old favorite of mine the Adore You stamp and die set and for the title I used the Script Words die.
I picked out a flowered patterned paper from the Our Family scrapobook collection and popped it beneath the leaf die cut. I originally wanted to use three panels but went with one and used another to create a quick card.
I added some journaling strips using stickers from the Reflection Scrapbook collection and with the leftovers I created a card.
You can see how the layout came together in the video below or watch it on YouTube in HD.
Thank you for stopping by and commenting. If there is anything in particular you’d like to see just pop it in the comment section.
Hello Altenew Fans! Terhi Koskinen here again sharing some scrapbooking inspiration. Even though December is knocking the door already, I’m sharing my pink summer layout today to show you how fun Altenew Dye Inks are to work with!
The background of this layout is created using only two Altenew products: Blush Crisp Dye Ink and Layered Dahlia Stencil A. I used a regular make-up sponge to add the ink through the stencil, and to receive a random look on the backgroung I didn’t make the pattern too strict. Just some ink here ans some ink there, spreading the color very gently. For more vibrant background I’d recommend to try using two or more colors. Altenew Dye Inks are perfect for stenciling techniques as they dry so quickly and are easy to work with. Layer the colors, use more than one stencil and soon you’ll find yourself doing magical backgrounds!
In addition to the stenciling, I thought to repeat the bloom theme with a big pink flourish. I cut the pink paper with electric cutting machine using Altenew Our family Scrapbook Collection papers. Then after playing with the paper layers and embellishments, I finished the layout with Altenew Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays. The shimmering effect in these mists is such a unique and rich, love the colors and how the drops are shining againts lights.
Hopefully you are now full of inspiration to enjoy the start of this new week!
We’ll see you soon!
Welcome to the Marker Release blog hop. If you have arrived here from the amazingly talented Erum, you are right on track.
Today we are getting creative with our two new Marker sets. They have been long awaited and now they are finally here.
Our Artist Markers are alcohol-based, allowing you to beautifully blend colors to any stamped images. Our various range of stamps are perfect for these markers. You can also easily pair them with our Crisp Dye Inks to take your coloring to the next level! The colors in this set are designed to be as close as possible to our existing ink colors, so you can take the color guessing game out of the way when coloring.
For this release I created a layout and two cards. The cards you can see on my blog.
Here is the layout I made.
First I created a background using the purple and pink/red shades. I created a second background and then stamped and embossed some feathers (Golden Feather stamp and die) on to it using our Platinum embossing powder.
TO add some detail I stamped some labels (Dot Labels stamp and die) using matching crisp ink colors (Lavander, Soft Lilac, Blush, Cotton Candy and and added some words on to them. The title I cut out by hand and comes from the Golden Feather stamp set.
You can see how I created this layout in the video below or watch it on YouTube in HD.

White Space and Hidden Journaling
Hey there and welcome to the Altenew Scrapbook Blog today. It’s me, Sandra. I would like to encourage you to use white space and hidden journaling on your next scrapbook page. Because once in a while it’s good to have some white space on your scrapbook layouts. That way the photo, stamped images and the embellishments become the stars of the layout. For today’s layout, I used the Our Family Kit and the Journal Card Builder Stamp Set. First, let me show you the details.
I started with white cardstock, the photo and the large wooden veneer rose from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. And I arranged these on the layout. Now, when I looked at the result, I decided to add some layered stamped leaves from the Layered Laurel Stamp Set. Because the leaves fit perfectly to the large wood veneer rose and the photo.
Next, I added two strips of the cool washi tape from the kit next to the photo. Then, I attached the die-cut words ‘xoxo’ and ‘smile’ along with the sentiment ‘love this’ from the Journal Card Builder Stamp Set. In addition, I used the lovely alpha stickers from the Our Family Scrapbook Kit to write the layout title.
The Journal Card Builder Stamp Set is perfect for adding journaling to your scrapbook pages. In order to preserve the white space and to make the layout look less crowded, I decided to stamp on the back of the scrapbook page. In addition, hidden journaling is a good way to keep private information confidential if you present your layouts on a public blog.
Finally, I’m hoping you like my layout inspiration today. Have a great time using the Our Family Scrapbook Kit and the Journal Card Builder Stamp Set.
Have a good day,
Hey there lovely Altenew Fans!
Terhi Koskinen here today, sharing my thoughts and ideas of one of the new dies released just couple days ago. Creative Edges: Notebook Die. I’m a big fan of all kind of layers and details on all crafty projects I do, so this die gave me instant inspiration to try creating layered background with it.
First I planned to cut the stripes and use some for the background, partly layered on top of each other, create a grid kind of pattern or something else fun. But then the real idea hit me: textured paper, with many many layers.
If you take a close look to the die you’ll see there is the cutting line and a stitched line. I really didn’t know which to choose from two fun and beautiful sides, so I used both. I cut papers same long as the die is, and about one inch wide, the used my cutting machine with the die and received to wonderful stripes of paper.
The next phase was to use double sided tape (choose glue if you prefer) to adhere the stripes one by one on a paper or cardstock. I cut the paper edges straight and other to circle shape, to make a neat and tidy look. The photograph is such a polite family portrait, that too messy look wasn’t an option.
I think these textured papers looks so pretty! To highlight the stripes I chose one of my favorite papers from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection, the one with the rainbow colors. The embellishments, wooden buttons and acetate butterfly are both from Reflection Scrapbook Collection. I like to be bold and mix these two, they are great together!
I truly hope this inspires you! Never limit your creativity, be curious to find new ways to use tools and other products in your craft projects.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
